Thread Name: Robin Hood ballads
Subject: RE: Robin Hood ballads
One day, Jim we'll have nice long a chat about the use of narrative dynamic in ballad singing and why the idiom has been ill-served by the folk revival as a whole, and why there in an widespread aversion to such things, and why our version here dervives entirely from the dramatic tensions of the story, but maybe this isn't the place.

Thanks otherwise for the kindnesses, likewise Michael & Raymond...
